FREMONT, Neb. – Federal immigration agents have stepped up efforts in Fremont since the debate over a controversial City Council proposal that would have punished those who rented to or hired illegal immigrants, local leaders said Wednesday.

“We’ve had a lot more contact with their field agents,” Doug Campbell, Dodge County Director of Correction, said of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“They’ve been coming up and talking to us in person, reassuring us that if we need anything they’re there and available,” Campbell said.

County Attorney Paul Vaughan said ICE has placed more federal “holds” on illegal immigrants serving time for previous criminal acts.

Illegals…get out of Dodge!

Posted by nebraskaobserver on May 23, 2008

Here’s some interesting comments posted this morning in the Dodge City, KS news regarding a previous story (“City officials told area has no need for immigration office,” May 16).  Dodge City is sometimes called the meat packing capital of the United States, with close to 11000 cattle being processed a day.  Wonder what the real percentage is in Schuyler, Lexington, Madison and Sioux City ?  Nebraska immigration enthusiasts/open-border nuts can only hope for these numbers!

I would rather see an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office in SW Kansas and enforce the law. Deport anyone illegal. Traveling to Wichita is a minor inconvenience if they want to be legal, naturalized citizens. If an employer wants to keep their help, they can accommodate that request. Perhaps the employer should pay hefty fines if they are employing illegal help.

 

“By the way … Senator Roberts tried to get the office, and he comes to SW Kansas quite often. It was the immigration office in Washington that refused him. I agree that these illegals or immigrants are people too, but they need to respect our laws and culture, which they currently do not.”

 

“Here’s my real question about this topic: How can the Hispanic population in Dodge City be ‘46%,’ (according to Rick Sowers) when our public schools are recording the Hispanic student population anywhere between 85-95 percent? I’m no math whiz, but those numbers don’t sound right. I believe the schools have the more accurate count, and besides that, all you have to do is look around town to see the truth!”
